Hubba Hubby

I've written a lot about the cute little peanut on the way lately, but nothing about my amazing husband.  (And I don't know about you, but I kinda think he looks like a model in the picture up there.)
I don't even know where to start in explaining to you the kind of man he is.  (Is it bad to brag about your husband?)
Anyway, I will just start with a list of things that I have come to love and appreciate about him.  Things I have discovered since we've been married.  Well, I'm sure I saw hints of some of these things before we were even married.
  • He makes dinner for us when I'm tired.
  • He helps me do the dishes.
  • Sometimes he even helps me cook.
  • He is a really good communicator.
  • He helps keep me calm.  A couple of my friends in high school used to call me "Spaz." Not a nickname I appreciated at all, but if I'm being honest, it was true.  I still tend to spaz out if I see a bug in our apartment, or I drop a glass bowl, or I spill something all over the floor.  At other times my temper will come out and Kwacha is just really good at nipping it and reminding me why I DON'T NEED TO FREAK OUT!  (Except he never yells at me.)
  • He never yells at me.
  • He. doesn't. snore. Seriously!  Read that again!  I used to joke about how if someone ever proposed to me, before responding I would ask if they snore.  When I was younger and our family went on vacation and had to share a hotel room, my dad would snore and I...would cry.  Literally.  I also hate wearing ear plugs.  Seriously, why is God so kind to me.
  • He makes sure I eat correctly.  Which is important with ulcerative colitis and gestational diabetes.  I don't always like it at the time, but in the long run I'm very thankful.
  • He's affectionate.
  • He prays for our daughter.
  • He always prays for family/friends at dinner.
  • He insists I call him if I ever get home late at night so that he can meet me outside before I get out of my car.
  • He thinks and cares about other people. 
  • He likes match-making as much as I do.  ;)
  • He'll watch shows and movies I like.  Including some chick flicks. 
  • He's a leader.  He is faithful to make sure we read together.  Right now it's Proverbs. 
  • He seeks after wisdom.
  • He is wise!
  • He thinks before he speaks and acts.
  • He carries the grocery bags, or anything remotely heavy, for me.

Okay, this is even easier than I thought it would be.  It's just flowing.  So I'll stop there for now.  But I can always make another list!  ;)
I love you, Kwacha!
